Mindlab in Denmark, one of the earliest (?) pioneers of human centered design in public policy, announced it is shutting down… http://mind-lab.dk/en
Due to political priorities MindLab is shutting down May 1st. However the Ministry of Business, Industry, and Financial Affairs will continue its dedicated work with innovation and digital transformation with the establishment of a disruption task force.
Anyone know what happened? It’s an important reminder that as a Lab, part of the focus must be on survival and generating value for both citizens and sponsors, lest similar fate befalls you… And what is survival? Growing in the size of the Lab, replicating the Lab, or infusing the Lab DNA back into your parent government agency (a bit cliched)?!?
Thanks Mindlab, you were a pioneer and an inspiration to me and many of us in Singapore!
